Mission and priorities

Our mission and key priorities are focused on producing leading research that translates to real-world solutions for our partners and society.

World leading research

We undertake research into robotic perception, understanding, control and interaction.

Prototyping

We create prototype systems to demonstrate principles and evaluate in real-world scenarios.

Engage for impact

We engage with industry, government and society through translational robotics research, media and public forums.

The LABS

Meet some of the people changing our world for the better, with a behind the scenes snapshot of science that can:

  • transform diamonds into high powered, energy efficient electronics
  • change plastics into truly biodegradable food for organisms
  • teach robots how to navigate the world like humans do.
